The Houthis repelled two attacks by the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies near the area of Kilo 16 and south of the airport of the city of al-Hudaydah on the western Yemeni coast, Brigadier General Yahya Sari, a spokesman of the Yemeni Armed Forces [an ally of the Houthis], said on November 11.

“Enemy warplanes attempted to support its forces by conducting dozens of airstrikes … However, its forces failed to achieve any advance in the field,” Brig. Gen. Sari added.

According to the Yemeni military spokesman, the Houthis killed 40 Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters and injured 60 others during the clashes around al-Hudaydah. 12 military vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition were also destroyed with anti-tank weapons.

The Houthis didn’t only repel the new attacks, but also struck several positions and gathering of Saudi-led coalition troops on the western coast of Yemen with artillery and armed drones, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.

The Saudi-led coalition failed to advance around or inside al-Hudaydah during the last three days, which indicates that the Houthis are once again re-gaining the initiative.

    “The Saudi-led coalition failed to advance around or inside al-Hudaydah during the last three days”
    Looks like the attack has stalled. Go Houthis. :)

      Houthis now keeping Coalition engaged along contact lines and keep intensity to bleed dry supply. Like June.

      Below is the master of ceremonies monologue about the coalition in awarding the Nobel Prize for incompetence.

      Never have we had an organization so richly deserving of this award. When at first you don’t succeed, you can always count on the Coalition to try again just like before, knowing with 100% confidence they will succeed at not succeeding – a perfect and consistent track record of the most disastrous proportions. No one can F__ck it up like them. They are the pros,

      What is their secret to outstanding success in delivering consistent results? Simple, they never learn.

      The Saudi losers are not doing too well. Look at the map, the Zaidis and Yemeni military has more land around Hodeidah now than before.

    Houthis need to clip the southern and northern pincers developing around the city, and stage a strong counterattack (1000 men) 20-30 kms south of the city to effectively cut off the coalition supply lines.

      the supply line is cut off at 3 axes already…..all saudi merc forces are literally trapped now….2-3 more days and this attack is over

      • S Melanson

        Correct, and need only keep Coalition forces engaged to bleed supplies and no need for costly advances. Pentagon giving intel to Coalition but Houthi intel seems better…

          They have walked the lands for many years and probably know ever nook and cranny; or know a man that does.

      • Jesus

        I do not see that on the map, where are the three axis are you referring to?

      • Alejandro Bonifacio

        i hope mbs wil be gone soon if the battle goes on in that way

    Just heard a novel argument from a Saudi shill, ‘the Houthis are terrorists because they don’t wear uniforms’. I guess he has never looked at the Saudi/UAE backed fighters.
